Why has the C.P.M. certification been discontinued? Is the CSPM replacing it or is it a totally different designation?

Hello William,


The C.P.M. was transitioned into recertification status, as its focus was purchasing. As the profession expanded to include other functions of supply management, we introduced the CPSM. Current C.P.M.s continue to recerify and maintain their certificaitons, as the C.P.M. and CPSM are both recognized within the profession.
